In this episode Susan Guthrie chats with Rachel Graham, whose new TEDx is focused on helpingyou to unlock your lockbox of secrets so that you can live a better life!

Not all secrets are bad, but so often they can make us sick - literally!  When we are hiding things from those around us or even from ourselves, we can manifest that stress as anxiety, illness, depression and more which can lead to mental health issues, addiction and broken relationships.  The devestating effect of what we keep locked away, often brings more misery to our lives, and Rachel Graham knows this all too well as the Founder of Healing Springs Ranch, an in-patient addiction and recovery center.  Her experiences with patients as well as the cost of secrets in her own life, led her to create her popular TEDx talk focused on helping you to unlock your lockbox of secrets.  

Some highlights from the episode:

  • Why secrets often result in physical illness and mental health issues;
  • The intersection of shame and secrets with divorce;
  • How there can be many kinds of infidelity in relationships and how they all stem from secrets;
  • Rachel's own secret that she reveals in her TEDx;
  • How you can release those secrets from your own lockbox; and

MUCH MORE!

The average person has 13 secrets, 5 of which they have never told to anyone so if you are ready to start letting some of your secret's go, this is the episode for you!

In this episode, Susan Guthrie visits again with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, "The Divorce Doctor," to help you deal with the passing of one year since Covid appeared in our world.  This anniversary, and so many others, can be distressing in many ways, especially when we are in the throes of a difficult time like divorce.

One year ago we were just hearing about this new strain of "flu" that had been discovered and was rapidly spreading with no known cure.  Words like "pandemic" and "quarantine" soon became part of the nightly news feed and our dinner table conversation.  Then we went into lockdown and the world will never be the same.  Dr. Elizabeth Cohen returns to the show to help us to understand the significance of anniversaries and the trauma we may feel as emotions are awakened and memories and loss can flood us.  With her usual deeply personal insights, Dr. Elizabeth will help make you aware of the pain and give you actionable tips for managing your feelings

Don't go through the anniversary alone.

Dr. Elizabeth will be joining Susan again for more episodes soon so here is your opportunity to ask her anything!  Send an email to divorceandbeyondpod@gmail.com and take advantage of your opportunity to ASK "THE DIVORCE DOCTOR" ANYTHING!

In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Author, Speaker and Activist, Emma Johnson, the Founder of Wealthy Single Mommy, about the highly charged topic of fully equal shared parenting and why it needs to become the norm in families.

There are few topics that raise more emotion among parents than the issue of shared parenting time or 50/50 parenting.  When parents separate, they must work out a plan that involves their children being raised in two households and often they find they have very different ideas of what is best for their kids.  Enter Emma Johnson, Founder of Wealthy Single Mommy and Moms for Shared Parenting, who is a leading activist in the equal parenting movement who is here to challenge the long-held societal norms that we hold so close.  The belief that children are best served when they are mostly with their mother and less with their father is still deeply embedded in many parents hearts and minds as they negotiate their parenting time.  Emma recently conducted a Single Mom and Income Survey which mined data from thousands of single mothers and other sources which shows that, among other key take-aways, kids do best when they are with their parents equally and the only way to close the gender pay gap is to have equally shared parenting responsiblity between the genders.

This is a fascinating discussion of so many key points that counter the societal norms of parenting, equality and gender roles.  This episode is a must listen for everyone, not just parents going through divorce, and Emma Johnson is the voice of change that we all need to hear!

More information about this week's Special Guest:

Emma Johnson is a journalist, activist, and the creator of WealthySingleMommy.com, the largest single mom community in the world.  A divorced mother of two who was herself raised by a single mother, Emma is the author of The Kickass Single Mom (Penguin), which was named by the New York Post as a “Smart, Must-Read.” Emma has been quoted on single motherhood and gender equality in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, The Doctors and hundreds of other outlets.

Emma launched the activist group Moms for Shared Parenting as a call for policy and cultural change to focus on the benefits for children, women, men, feminism and our society when parents share equally in raising children. She has spoken about single motherhood and gender equality at the United Nations and Google.
